Hello friends! Today I am sharing a card that I made because I was asked by Stampin' Up! to create a card and video to share with my fellow demonstrators. I felt very honoured to have been asked to do this so I immediately said I would do it. Videos are not my strong point but I was up to the challenge.
I knew I wanted to use the On the Horizon bundle for my card. As soon as I saw this bundle, I knew I had to have it. It reminded me of our camping trips down on the Oregon Coast. That is definitely one of my favourite spots to camp. I love the ocean!
Here is the card I created:
I started by creating my watercolour tools. I added a few drops of re-inker to my water painter and added water to it. I used a water painter for Sahara Sand ink and another one for Misty Moonlight ink. I painted my inks onto a piece of Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper. I started by painting on the sky/water using the Misty Moonlight filled water painter. I then added the beach/sand using the Sahara Sand filled water painter. I let this dry for quite a while. I could have used my heat tool to dry it faster but I wasn't in a hurry. Once it was completely dry, I stamped the grasses image from the On the Horizon stamp set using Sahara Sand ink. I then stamped the seagulls image using Jet Black Staz On ink. I used my Stamparatus to stamp the seagulls because I knew I would want to stamp it more than once to get a nice dark image. The Stamparatus allows me to do that and make sure that the image stamps in the correct spot every time.
On a scrap piece of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the fence board image using Early Espresso ink. I stamped the image about four times in a row. I then used the fences dies from the bundle to cut these out. I added the fences to either side of my card front using adhesive. I cut out the grasses image using a die from the same bundle. I used a piece of DSP from the New Horizon DSP pack to cut out the grass images. The image actually has a long narrow piece to it as well but I didn't want that part for my card so I simply snipped it off and just used the bushy grass portion. I attached these to the ends of my fences using adhesive.
I matted my watercolour cardstock onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock and then added that to a Basic White thick card base.
I stamped my sentiment using Jet Black Staz On ink on a scrap piece of Basic White cardstock. I fussy cut around the words and added that to my card using dimensionals.
To complete my card, I added some Pebbles Enamel Shapes. I absolutely love these little pebbles! They are so real looking and add just what this card needs to complete it.
Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed this card. Here is the link to the video if you would like to watch it. Please be kind as videos are not my strong point. https://youtu.be/3DVfFwr-uiM
Stay well and keep creating!
